We all know about Darvish, and a Fielder signing would make them definite favorites for their third straight pennant, but for now here is Yorvit Torrealba less than thrilled with a Venezuelan league umpire today:

He evidently didn't like the strike 2 call. :lol:

And is suspended 66 games (remainder of this season and all of next) by the VWL.

I hope Selig comes down hard on this prick. MLB should suspend him at least as long as the Venezuelan league did, and I'm talking about calendar days not games. The VWL will keep him out of the rest of this off-season and all of next winter. Torrealba shouldn't set foot in an MLB team's facilities until spring 2013. Minor League Baseball should follow suit.

As for whether or not Selig has the authority to do so, he can pretty much do whatever the flying fuck he wants in the best interests of baseball. The attorneys for the MLBPA will protest and pontificate, but it won't matter.
